A revision labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is used to correct the appearance of the labia minora, the inner lips of the vulva. The procedure is often performed to improve the appearance of the labia minora, which can be asymmetrical, enlarged, or have an irregular shape. The purpose of a revision surgery is to address any issues or dissatisfaction that a woman may be experiencing from a previous labiaplasty.
The labia minora are the inner lips of the vulva, located on either side of the clitoris. They are made up of soft, delicate tissue and are usually covered by the labia majora, the outer lips of the vulva. The labia minora can become enlarged due to childbirth, aging, or genetics. This can cause discomfort and embarrassment, as well as interfere with sexual activity.
During a revision labiaplasty procedure, Dr. Sue Kafali will make small incisions in the labia minora and remove excess tissue and any scar tissue. The remaining tissue is then reshaped and sutured together.
The recovery time for revision labiaplasty is typically two to four weeks. During this time, the patient should avoid strenuous activities and sexual intercourse. The patient may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort during the recovery period. Dr. Sue Kafali will provide specific post operative instructions.
There are several reasons why a person may need a revision labiaplasty. Some of the most common reasons include:
- To reduce the size of the labia minora if they are enlarged or asymmetrical.
- To improve the appearance of the labia minora.
- To reduce discomfort or pain caused by the labia minora.
- To improve sexual satisfaction.
- To improve self-confidence.
A revision labiaplasty is a safe and effective procedure that can help improve the appearance and function of the labia minora. Benefits can include reducing vaginal discomfort, help improve sexual satisfaction, and even improve your self-confidence.
It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of a revision labiaplasty procedure with Dr. Sue Kafali or a qualified surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
